About us

The Gove Peninsula Surf Lifesaving Club is located in North East Arnhem Land in the town of Nhulunbuy. Established in 1971 we were the first Surf Lifesaving Club to be formed in the Northern Territory.
We take pride in being a key part of the Nhulunbuy community, providing lifesaving services on local beaches and activities for junior members. The natural beauty of the club location together with club facilities provide an ideal backdrop for member families to enjoy.

New club members are always welcome. Active members contribute to patrols and training is available to anyone who would like to become an active member of the club. General members of the club are able to contribute in a number of ways including supporting the junior program, volunteering for bar or BBQ duty or supporting the various working bees that help to maintain club facilities.

The surf club bar is open on Friday nights and Sunday afternoons during the dry season. The club grounds overlook the Arafura sea. The club is also available for private functions for club members and their guests.
